BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe Review
  • Balance and handling; solid range of engine and pricing options; auto gearbox is fantastic; arguably the most stylish 3 Series variant; practical family vehicle thanks to large boot space
  • Road noise from the tyres at country highway speeds; engine note doesn’t match the sporty styling in any model; interior is starting to feel a little old in a design sense
